Tracing Beauty

Painting
$ 2,400

DESCRIPTION

Oil on canvas | 2022

In Tracing Beauty, the new series of paintings from artist Petra Schott, she inquires about beauty. What is beauty in art, and what is beauty in life, she asks. Is beauty a criterion for us? Is it truth, or is it beauty and truth? Can we enjoy beauty even if there is a lot of chaos around us? As always, Schott’s work is influenced by Cy Twombly, Leiko Ikemura, Joan Mitchell, Marlène Dumas, Elisabeth Cummings, and Henri Matisse as she creates colorful representations of nostalgia, freedom, and human relationships.

“As an abstract painter, I am not so much interested in a real-world image as I want to bring reflections and feelings into my work.”
